It's retinitis pigmentosa. My father had it - he went blind by age 45. His sister had it, too. It's an inherited disease with no current cure but much research is being done on it. Read more about it here:
Foundation Fighting Blindness - What is Retinitis Pigmentosa?
If your friend lives in south Florida, she should go to Bascom Palmer in Miami for the best care.
